Stamps that are not self-adhesive, don't need to be licked. You can simply slide them over a little water in saucer or use a moist sponge. Surely someone who is smart enough to make a bomb (or what appears to be one) would know about DNA in saliva? Please tell me nobody is really that stoopid!
Of course, he did not specify if ALL of the bombs thus far analyzed are not functional. I suspect that will be the case, but I guess it's not in the MSM's interest to say anything that might relieve the public of this general worry so soon. Gotta milk it. But this lack of functionality definitely goes along with what the bomb experts were saying on Twitter yesterday.

I agree with Ben sometimes; certainly I do here, and I was very glad to see him speak up on it, since plenty of people on the right are running with "False Flag." It's ugly out there on Twitter. Time was something like this would bring Americans together... Anyway, I would love to see our leaders and prominent, responsible commentators pull together -- surely everyone sane can agree that whoever did this and whatever their motivation, it's terrible. And while we can't stop random folks on the street from speculating (including ourselves), I think those with a legit platform should unanimously be saying "It's terrible and we condemn it. Let the FBI do its job."
The only thing I'm really prepared to conclude at this point is this person is a first-class shithead and no genius, and that he/she certainly, at a minimum, wants to frighten and upset people. I read a few articles saying that at least some of the devices were functional, certainly functional enough to hurt or maim someone. But even were that not true (a) it doesn't mean this person didn't intend them to be functional; it could just mean the person was inept and failed, and (b) they are still a shitty person even if the sole intent was to upset and frighten people. But, yeah, I think we'll have to wait for the FBI to know more.
During a search of the truck, police found two more loaded handguns, a semi-automatic rifle, a large amount of ammunition, a bulletproof vest and a pocketknife with a swastika on it, Officer Ernesto Rodriguez said.
"Now what we're doing is investigating why this 32-year-old man from South Dakota was in an alleyway here on Miami Beach, what his intentions were, what his motives were," Rodriguez said.
My Spidey senses are tingling, but maybe that's because everyone is on edge. Still, it will be interesting to see if this guy was meeting up with others of his ilk, I think, and what they were up to.
Yes, and we're going to be discussing how crazy is crazy.
Anyway, now that the guy is caught and no one has been injured, I'm going to post some funny stuff in Tweets from a couple of days ago - once the bomb experts started saying all the things weirdly and obviously wrong about the pipe bombs in the packages, people started sending in pictures of their homemade "bombs". I laughed out loud on more than a couple, The hot dog one, hahahaha:
There's a link to a thread on 4chan with more.
EDITED TO ADD:
ooops, the link had a pic of a "bomb" with an inappropriate component. So I edited the link out. Damn, they are so funny.
